A Rainy Afternoon

Sometimes a quiet rainy afternoon can be a blessing.

Yesterday was one.

Originally I had planned to do some much needed gardening.

The weather had other plans.








So instead I spent those sweet hours sketching a gathered bouquet...












 reading an inspiring book...













Experimenting with a new pen the Elegant Writer...













and savoring the freshness that comes from the passing showers.

Thank you for letting me share what I did with a rainy afternoon.   Hope you will do the same.


Have a lovely week.

Hugs Debbie

  1. It has been raining cats and dogs. Son and his little family came for a rare visit. They will be moving back this summer and told me today they are having a new little one in December. So happy for them.

  3. What a nice way to spend a rainy afternoon! Love the sketch of the bouquet and the sketch with the Elegant Writer. You got a nice effect! I hope the weather the rest of the week gives you some time to do some gardening. I was off painting at the New York Botanical Gardens today. The flowers and trees in bloom were just incredible. Enjoy!
